From top to bottom: Cascade Cool, Mojito Madness, Fear and Desire, Bikini So Teeny, Off The Shoulder (apologies for the slightly dubious lighting)
So I went for Off The Shoulder, which is a pretty hot pink (Cascade Cool is more of a dusky pink). The application is great - a good thick brush which gives full coverage of the nail and the polish dries quickly too, which is always a bonus. The photos below show three coats of the polish (I could have got away with two, but I just can't stop painting...!) This is likely to become one of my summertime go-to polishes as it's just so candy-like and pretty and gives a nice pop to any outfit.
They look a bit neon here!
Look out for swatches of the other four Essie polishes in my set, coming soon!
